Just 3 days back, the Linux distribution Debian reached 16 years old.I know i am bit late to post this still , its never late to share information.
Debian creator, Ian Murdock, first announced his new distro to the Linux development news group on 16th August, 1993. In his initial posting, he promised a sleek, slim distribution with the most up-to-date of everything! I’d say he succeeded in his aims. Google Groups has archived the message and you can read it here.
It’s been a long road from there to here, but Debian is one of the best distros out there, so Happy Birthday Debian!
